Goldust was founded in 2001 and is headed by Briony Hartley. Briony is an English graphic designer, typographer and colour consultant, who studied Typography at The University of Reading. She is also a Visiting Tutor at the Arts University Bournemouth.

'Great design makes the world a better place, bringing joy and serenity to the chaos of modern life, guiding people to the information they need to improve their lives. At Goldust Design we know that, sometimes, you need to whisper, not shout.'

Experts in chic typography and clear printed communication, Goldust has worked with many wonderful historic institutions, publishers, authors and in-house teams, to get their design projects completed beautifully, efficiently, on budget and on time. We know how to discuss a brief, fine-tune the best solutions and collaborate with clients to create stunning graphic design which gets results. 

As book design specialists, Goldust Design has over twenty years experience in publishing and has designed 100s of books. From luxurious royal cookery books for Buckingham Palace and spacious art monographs for galleries, to novels for self-published authors, every project receives the same energy and enthusiasm. Goldust has a passion for beauty and believes that design is not about the designer, it's about you... the reader.


Goldust Design is based in Dorset, just a stone's throw from the beach in one direction and a train to London in the other.

Chatting about design is our favourite thing to do, so drop us an email or phone Briony for a FREE consultation to discuss your project.
